Café Histoire: Les choses, un portrait de la France

22/04/2013

The full title of Michel Pérec’s novel Les Choses : Une histoire des années soixante is the perfect illustration of the mutations the French society was experiencing between 1958 and 1968 : ‘the Yé-yé years’, the development of consumerism, the birth of the ‘new executive’… But did these changes coincide with the General de Gaulle’s ambitions for the country?

Les Choses is a novel published by Michel Pérec in 1965 (Julliard), winner of the Prix Renaudot the same year.
